Our undergraduate program is offered by The Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs (the #1 rated public affairs school in the USA) and the College of Arts and Sciences.
The major is completed through coursework from several academic departments. You will acquire skills in report writing, problem-solving, information gathering, computer applications, quantitative analysis, and working in teams as you study major public policy issues. Not only is the program both hands-on and interdisciplinary, but it also offers a wide variety of electives to choose from.
